It’s Christmas! I absolutely love this time of year. I can’t get enough of all things festive – music, films, candles, food, decorations, you name it I love it. So when I was tagged in a 2017 Christmas tag by the lovely Rachael at FromRachaelClaire I knew I had to take part.  I am so unprepared this year as Emilia has taken over our lives but this was perfect to get me into the Christmas spirit!

So here goes:

Favourite Christmas Movie & Why? 

Santa Claus The Movie.  I think it is such a wonderful film and I’ve watched it every Christmas Eve since I was little. It is a bit of a tradition and I still watch it now.

Top 3 Songs On Your Christmas Playlist?

The Pogues – Fairytale of New York, Mariah Carey – All I want for Christmas and all of the Michael Buble Christmas Album

Favourite Christmas Tradition?

My mum and dad’s open house.  Every Christmas morning my parents have friends and family round for a Christmas tipple, I love the buzz of it and getting to see people you don’t often see. It’s a fab way to spend Christmas morning and I can’t wait to show Emilia off this year.

What Is On Your Christmas Bucket List?

A visit to Lapland, my sister took her kids this year and I was so jealous.

Buddy The Elf or Ebenezer Scrooge?

Buddy The Elf of course

Best Thing About Being A Parent At Christmas (alternative if not a parent; Favourite Thing About Christmas For You?

I love seeing family and friends, everyone is happy at Christmas and I just love being around all my favourite people.

What Is One Present You Asked For As A Child, But Never Received?

A soda stream, and I’ve still never had one!

Do You Have Any Christmas Eve Traditions?

Christmas will be totally different for us this year but usually my husband and I spend Christmas Eve just the 2 of us.  We used to spend Christmas Day and Boxing Day staying with family so this was our time together.  We would just go out for a meal but it was nice to do something just us before Christmas with family kicked off.

Which Festive Beverage Tickles Your Tinsel?

Always Champagne!

Best Present You Ever Received?

Ooh that’s tough, probably my the Louboutins Danny bought me one year.  Although they are evil to wear they are so pretty!

Sprouts on Christmas Dinner? Yay Or Nay?

Definitely Yay!

What Is Your Ideal Christmas?

Just being able to spend time with all my family and friends over the festive period.  I am such a huge Christmas fan, I love it and the main reason is seeing my family altogether and having fun.
